Push Notifications are Never Received


Edit: I’ve never used ST automations but it occurred to me to create one in order to see if I could get a push notification to work from the ST app. It doesn’t so the problem doesn’t appear to be specific to Webcore.

Original Post:

This morning it occurred to me that I hadn’t been seeing push notifications lately so I created a test piston that should send a push notification when a door opens. The piston executes but I never get the message. When I look at the log, I see the message being sent. I also see it in the list of notifications when I check the notifications section in the ST app. I’ve verified that SmartThings notifications are allowed on my phone.

Has anyone else experienced this? I’m stumped. Thanks for any insight or suggestions anyone can provide.

Here’s the log, the piston and a couple of screen grabs.

This last week I’ve also strangely seen some push notifications not working, any issues like this are usually down to Samsung and not webCoRE.
